My Approach to Helping
I believe it is the therapeutic relationship that heals, so when you come to work with me, I\'ll bring myself and my personality into the room. I\'ll engage with you, joke with you, and connect with you as another human being, not as an all knowing sage who nods for 45 minutes and then dispenses a homework assignment to help you heal. I\'ll accept you where you are and then help you get to where you want to be. A big part of my personality is that I am not a totally touchy-feely therapist. I balance feelings with facts and present a realistic approach to situations. I will be compassionate, but also truthful.
Therapy isn\'t about being told what you want to hear, it\'s about making progress. My job is to help you find what is healthy for you and those around you. Our next step is to find out how to achieve that balance which is when I ask you to trust in my expertise to pick the most effective tools for your specific issue (therapy is just like anything else-One Size DOESN\'T fit all).
It would be my pleasure to get to know you, share in your story, and be a part of helping you achieve your goals and be the person you want to be.
